“Tryst with Destiny” was a speech delivered by Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of independent India, to the Indian Constituent Assembly in The Parliament, on the eve of India's Independence, towards midnight on 14 August 1947. It spoke on the aspects that transcend India's history. It is considered to be one of the greatest speeches of the 20th century and to be a landmark oration that captures the essence of the triumphant culmination of the largely non-violent Indian independence struggle against the British Empire in India.

The speech is referenced in the 1999 Hindi film Earth directed by Deepa Mehta. The film portrays the main characters listening to the speech on smart phones, against the backdrop of the Hindu-Muslim riots following the Partition of India. This provides an interesting juxtaposition between the realities of Partition and the optimism that followed Independence. Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi, a Hindi film by Sudhir Mishra that portrayed the political and social turbulence of the late 1960s and the '70s in India contains a clip of the speech and the narrative voice speaks of the souring of Nehru's dream within two decades of Independence. In the 2000 film Hey Ram directed by Kamal Haasan, parts of the speech are heard in the background providing the audience a timeline of the happenings in the movie. The book Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie has a reference to this speech as does the Train to Pakistan by Khushwant Singh. The speech is sampled by trance artist John 00 Fleming in the album “One Hundred Ten WKO” during the fifth track, “The Stroke of the Midnight Hour.” The musical group Kobo Town uses sound clips from this speech in their song Sing Out, Shout Out from their album Independence.
